Zero Weeks will be the first feature documentary to analyze America’s desperate need for modern paid family leave policies. Through Ellen’s passionate career, we follow the historical arc of family and medical leave and how our nation arrived to where it is now. Zero Weeks argues an economic, social, medical, political and global case for paid family leave by creating a poignant, hopeful and honest snapshot of how the work-life balance impacts American families and businesses. The film follows various American families from different socioeconomic backgrounds as they are forced to choose between the family they love and the job they need.
